As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Quieter Than Quiet... Wednesday, January 24

Today I was super busy with working on Empowered and I had boxing. A lot of my business building work is done on the computer, online or via text messaging on my phone.  I must have had a dozen contacts to deal with today.  However, despite being busy, I can count the number of people I had actual voice and/or face-to-face conversations with on one hand.  

1. The condo front desk receptionist 
Picked up my daily food delivery from her and later asked her for the maintenance man. 

2. The condo maintenance man 
Faulty wire caused smoke in my condo so he came to look at my outlet plugs. 

3. One of the army girls who collects the entrance fee at the Philippine army gym 
She signed me in, took my money and joked about how I always put a different age down every time I sign in for boxing. Today I am 30. The other day I was 17. 

4. My new friend at boxing club (met him tonight)
He was one of 7 at the club tonight but he was the only one who actually talked to me.  We chatted off and on during training and then he randomly walked me home which was sweet because he lives in the opposite direction.

5. Skittles
This is a given.  I talk to him daily, around the clock.
